TV News Roundup: ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Adds Ted Raimi, Lee Majors; ‘Mary Mary’ Gets Season 5 Premiere Date

Starz’s “Ash vs Evil Dead” has added two cast members for Season 2, while We TV has announced the premiere date for the fifth season of “Mary Mary,” plus even more in today’s news roundup…

Casting News:

Lee Majors and Ted Raimi are joining the fight against the “Evil Dead” in the second season of the Starz horror-comedy.

Majors will play Brock Williams, the father of Bruce Campbell’s Ash, while Raimi plays Ash’s childhood best friend Chet Kaminski.

Although Majors is new to the series, Raimi previously appeared in all three of the original “Evil Dead” movies, directed and written by his brother, Sam Raimi. The 10-episode second season will pick up the threads left off in season one, with Ruby (Lucy Lawless) possessing the Necronomicon, Pablo (Ray Santiago) still dealing with trauma from the cabin, and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) plotting revenge against the Evil Dead after the death of her parents. Season 2 of “Ash vs Evil Dead” premieres in 2016.

Premiere Dates:

We TV’s fifth season of “Mary Mary” will premiere on March 3. Last season ended with Erica and Tina Campbell focusing on their individual careers, forcing Mary Mary into an indefinite hiatus. The sisters, now in direct competition with each other, are also feeling pressure to keep Mary Mary in the game.

E! announced “#RichKids of Beverly Hills” begins its fourth season on April 17. The latest season will be the first-ever wedding season, following Morgan Stewart and Brendan Fitzpatrick to the altar. The eight-episode season will follow everything from the wedding planning, bachelor parties and bridal showers up to the big moment itself. The season also sees Dorothy Wang building her business brand and product line, Jonny Drubel enjoying the single life and focusing on his music career and EJ Johnson trying to figure out what he wants to do post-school.

A&E’s “60 Days In,” a docu-series following seven innocent participants who go undercover as inmates in a Jeffersonville, Indiana, jail, will premiere March 10 with back-to-back episodes. The series plans to expose the issues of what really happens behind bars. The Clark County Jail was chosen as a result of recent corruption. The seven participants will live with the facility’s general population for 60 days without officers, fellow inmates or staff knowing their secret.

Reality TV News:

Gwen Stefani has joined “The Voice” Season 10 as an advisor. The news was posted on the Twitter page for the NBC singing reality competition show on Wednesday. Stefani has been a judge on the series, though is bowing out this season, while Christina Aguilera steps back in.
